F1 to F2 and then to H4

Recommended Posts



I am currently under OPT, which will expire in June 2014. I got a job and the employer will be processing my H1B in a way that it starts right after my OPT ends. My spouse is in F1 status, whose job will end this december and OPT ends in April. My spouse has 60days OPT left which can be used to find another job. Incase we do not find a job, I am thinking to convert status from F1 to F2 and later to H4 based on my H1 processing. My questions-


1) F1 to F2..am not sure how long it takes. May be 3-6 months.

2) While F2 application is in progress (assuming 3-6 months and my H1 processing would have already started by then), can I initiate again a H4 application for my spouse? If I can, do I have to withdraw F2 application? Is that possible?


Thanks In advance,
